First, that is not yet a "typical" result for you. The trend is for increased CA, but there is enough OA in there, i'm not sure we want to reduce pressure a lot. You have a pretty steady amount of OA through that entire history, and only recently has CA become a bit of an issue. If you recall I mentioned EPR? I think turn that down to 1 and see what that does. I suspect the 0.5 reduction in pressure is going to have less effect than cutting back the EPR. Given the recent change in environment for your sleep, I think that has more to do with this than anything related to your CPAP therapy, and it could resolve by itself soon, even if you do nothing.

BTW, ceiling fans are great. Quiet, cooing and can be used with minimal air conditioning to make a room a lot more comfortable. Best improvement I have ever made to a bedroom.

Thanks a lot for the reply. I just went and turned down my EPR to 1, I also have a setting where it can be MED or FAST. Its currently set to med. Would you advise just turning EPR completely off or just leaving it at one?

I think so also, and I appreciate the advice Wink. I will look into putting a ceiling fan in also.

The AutoSet in auto mode, only increase pressure in response to snoring and flow limitation which are indicators for obstructive apnea - not central apnea. So pressure is not increased if were no such indicators, and that in turn may be enough to prevent central events from occurring in the first place. Some people find, not using EPR helps reducing AHI, worn mask cushion does not helps either

Yes I know it does not. I have to get one ASAP. What nasal mask do you use I have pondered getting one.

RE: Rising AHI
I just bought a Resmed p10 and it is being shipped to me as we speak from an online distributor on this site. I am excited about it and I hope it helps. Now they sent the mask and a footnote at the bottom of the shipping notice states that if they do not have a script on file they want one and I have to either provide them with my DR. information or the script itself.

Now has anyone been shipped a mask and after you get it they want the script? Whats the point in that. All the other places I saw ask for a script before they will even ship.
